Coluber constrictor priapus
Thank you Janson and Mary! This is the closest I have been to one and boy was he ever fast!! He was really pretty!
This is most definitely a Southern Black Racer (just posted a spotting of one myself not long ago). Lovely harmless snakes, but unfortunately don't see near as many as years gone by...Lovely spotting and photo!
I wish you luck with finding one, Goody! This one was passing from one wooded area to another, but detoured up against the house rather than through an open field!! I am still getting used to Melbourne!!
You're quite welcome. My brother and his family just moved to Melbourne last year, so perhaps I'll visit in the future and have a few spottings from there as well. :-)
Thank you very much for the Id, Goody! I really appreciate it!
